Welcome to our web page on the Similan Islands, our snorkeling tours there and of course the tranquility of Poseidon Bungalows in Khao Lak (North of Phuket), Thailand. Poseidon is located south of the main resort area Khao Lak, on Khao Lak Beach, with kilometers of beautiful sand beaches to ourselves...
Our names are Olov and Tukkata - we have built Poseidon Bungalows ourselves and have been doing tours to the Similan Islands for over 20 years now. Olov is originally from Sweden and Tukkata is of course Thai, but she has lived in Sweden for more than 10 years. We both speak Thai, Swedish and English.
Khao Lak is the "new" tourist area in Thailand and is more geared towards nature tourism, diving, snorkeling and beaches; perfect for couples and families, but if you look for night life and bars it might not be for you... But we can offer peace and quiet, no water scooters or para sailing boats, nobody selling things on the beach and no sun chairs. This is what Krabi and Phuket looked like 15 years ago. If you look for a small, personal place right on the beach Poseidon Bungalows might be it!

This is what some guide books have written about us:
"If you want to experience the beauty of these islands, but aren't certified to dive, these trips provide an excellent alternative" (Lonely Planet 2005 - Thailand)
"One of the first bungalow operations in the area and still one of the most beautiful places to stay." (Lonely Planet - Beaches and Islands in Thailand)
"Even if you are not going to Koh Similan, you should think about stopping here at Poseidon Bungalows, which are superbly located in a wild and rocky shore with jungle and rubber plantations in the background." (Rough guide to Thailand)
"Poseidon Bungalows deserve kudos for its commitment to nature conservation"
